This new edition contains thousands of descriptions of terms organized into expanded and updated sections, including those on politics and the Internet, and dozens of new sections. Many new finance and technology terms have also been added to this user-friendly book.

New sections include:

  • Anthropology
  • Archaeology
  • Chemistry
  • Dinosaurs
  • Evolution
  • Fishing
  • Jewelry
  • Rocks
  • Sleep
  • and more.
